1st Pinterest Project

I am so happy that I finally completed a project! I made these pots a few weeks ago to give to my fabulous administration and the awesome ladies that work in the office. I also did a big pot for my room mom but forgot to take a picture. Now that it's summer I hope to finish many more cute projects that I've been pinning away. I'm also happy to get back to blogstaking. I've been slacking for awhile so I need to catch up on what everybody's up to.

I got my inspiration from Cara Carroll at The First Grade Parade. Aren't her painted pots precious?!

  1. Those pots are adorable! I wouldn't know where to begin! Did you use a stencil?


  2. They came out fantastic!! I would also like to know how you did that!!

  4. The pots turned out soooo cute!!! I need to give this a try this summer. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Thanks girls! I did cut a stencil out of contact paper for the ones that have the curvy white frame thing. The others I just painted a white shape. Then I used a sharpie to outline and write the initials. The sharpie hide my uneven paint lines wonderfully. And the dots were just with a round foam brush.
    Tara- I'll definitely link up!

  6. Great post i really like it what a strategy to promote this thank you so much...
